    Looks like a nickel but the other side is empty'. I've had it for many years. It doesn't look like it was made for jewelry.

      Perhaps someone ground off the reverse side of the coin. I found this info:

      https://in.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20060722210236AAyZPS0

      "Hi...I am a coin dealer in the Midwest, and here is the CORRECT answer. It's worth a nickel, and the reason why is because someone has ground off one side of the coin. Compare it with another nickel; you'll see it's thinner, even if only slightly.

      How do I know this? Simple. The way coins are struck, both obverse (heads) and reverse (tails) are struck at the same time...thus, it is impossible to have a coin with one blank side. It also makes it impossible for a coin to have two heads or tails as well.

      In short, this isn't an error coin; it's simply something that someone with a grinding tool and too much time on their hands had some fun with. We see stuff like this come into our store all the time. I'd love to tell you it's valuable, but unfortunately it's not."

      No, It looks like a trick coin used for magic tricks. Some have a hollow compartment to hide things inside while others have a magnets or steel glued inside to make otherwise none magnetic coins, magnetic. Or to slip over another smaller coin to make it disappear... You get the idea.
